Method’s latest video, “Diversitree”, is now available to view on our YouTube channel. In this quirky demonstration, Mr Blueberry and Fairly-Small-Yellow-Bird disagree on how colour affects the diversification of birds. Rich FitzJohn shows them how to
test their hypotheses using the comparative phylogenetic methods
implemented in the R package “diversitree”, recently described in the Methods paper “Diversitree: comparative phylogenetic analyses of diversification in R“. This article is one of Method’s freely available applications, which aim to provide a source of citable descriptions of new methods and techniques in ecology and evolution.
